Intel 25nm X25-M SSD specifications leaked Vs X25-M G3

Specifications leaked on the web about the next 25nm technologies SSD from Intel the Intel X25-M G3 and this must lead to double the capacity of the SSD up to 600GB with the same price as the current X25-M G2 34nm SSDs .

Details of Intel's third-gen X25-M "Postville Refresh" SSD have been published over at AnandTech. The new disks will be available in capacities of 80/160/300/600GB and promise read speeds of up to 250MB/s (same as before) and write speeds of up to 170MB/s (vs 100MB/s on the G2). The random write performance has been significantly improved, just as the drive lifespan, while one of the new main features is support for AES-128 encryption. The only downside is the increased maximum power consumption."via dvhardware"
